“you do know we’re junkers, right?”
hello old friends…yes, it’s been awhile. and for that, i have no excuses except to say that our current project is, to say the least, consuming us.
so this is how it all started. this is how the project began…
with a text…and a picture… and a phone call…
on mothers day, may 2010.
the texts were from bev and miranda lambert. the picture, from miranda. and the phone calls…well, i don’t even remember now…
mom, amie & i were on the road weaving our way through the hill country…in and out of signal. bev lambert was excitedly calling and texting all of our phones…and finally, one of her calls came through. miranda had gotten engaged the day before.
and when miranda asked us to help with the wedding reception, we promptly responded: “you do know we’re junkers, right?!”. only miranda would ask a group of junkers to deck out her WEDDDDDDING. one of the biggest events in her life. only miranda would ask people that have never, ever, everrrrrrr been wedding planners, wedding coordinators, or wedding decorators to deck out HER wedding. hell, i haven’t ever even watched an episode of bridezillas, say yes to the dress, or my redneck wedding! (but, i did see my big, fat, greek wedding…does that count?!).
so here we are, almost a year later, the BiG DaY is less than a month away. and our sanity walked out the back door weeks ago. we’re completely gypsy-fyin’ the reception (aka southern RoCKStAR glamour & grit party central) at the venue. and in true small-town, country-girl, anti-diva, miranda form, she’s left it completely in our hands. no opinions on color palettes, theme, or layout. she just keeps saying “do what y’all do, i trust y’all”…. and i think in a perfect world this should probably relax us…… right?
complete control. all decisions. no direction. “do what you do.” where’s my wine?
